Greetings, marleen! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since last July. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
Great to meet you. Thanks for your reply and friendship. I will definitely contact you when next I am in Barbados. Meanwhile I have started a blog where I intend to reflect on issues of faith and atheism. I have a short discussion on my journey from faith in Barbados, would be great to get comments or feedback from you.
Thank you for your reply. It will be great to hear your thoughts. We are still in our early stages! Just click on this link: Conversations group then find the line that says "Join conversations..." and click there.
